This field system appears to be associated with the deserted Medieval settlement SX76SW/23 at Cuttleford at SX 71146222 in the west. The field system forms the existing field system and the true extent is not clear. Ridge and furrow is not visible in the fields from the RAF 1948 aerial photographs (which are poor).
